Event description

Description

On behalf of Mayor Muriel Bowser, the Mayor’s Office of Nightlife and Culture is partnering with the Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA), the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), Serve DC, and Nightclub Security Consultants (NSC) to host a discussion about how to prevent, prepare, and react to an active shooter incident.

This event is open to owners/operators and employees within the nightlife industry.

“Time and time again, our federal government has sat back and watched as Americans have been murdered on our streets, in schools, churches, offices, movie theaters, at bus stops and in shopping malls. In 2019, the unfortunate reality is that nowhere in our nation feels safe from gun violence. Mass shootings are too common. Firearm suicide is a public health crisis. In cities and towns across our nation, people of all ages are settling petty disputes with guns. Sometimes the people killed are the intended target, other times they are bystanders, and almost always, we know it was preventable.”

–Mayor Muriel Bowser
